    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It's a kaleidoscopic ode to the joy of music, and it's the most exciting debut album since Mos Def's Black on Both Sides.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It's the sound of musicians realizing how good they are at what they do. And then doing it.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A dreamy, layered work that merely ups the rock ante of his perfectly balanced 1998 release, XO -- an exquisite union of wistful acoustic stylings and polished pop.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It's the sound of a man finding a new place for himself, liking it, and reveling in it.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score

    • 75 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    "The Wheel and the Maypole" might be the greatest song the band has ever recorded...
    • 68 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This album is truly affecting -- it is an instant, irresistible, bounce-in-your-step morning cup of coffee of an album.
